Tree Surgery

Does the budding (geddit?) tree surgeon in you ever wish your plants were a little less two dimensional. My Camelia (Chamelia? Chamelion?) is y shaped and I’d really like it to be more rounded. So the question is, can I by the ingenious use of elastic bands, string, scissors or superglue, or by turning the plant in a certain direction towards the sunlight, encourage growth into a third dimension. The biggest leaves are on the end of the branches and I’m concerned they’re going to weigh the branches down and I’ll end up with two nearly horizontal branches, can I cut them without making them die? Also why doesn’t it have any flowers? These are the kind of stressful questions I have to deal with at the moment.


I've got Skype

Crazily enough it’s on my phone and is free. Not that I have enough friends to use the free minutes I already have but you know, it’s always a bonus. I am t.kempton and I think that’s all anybody needs to know to add me as a friend or whatever the skype equivalent is. Plus you have to actually know me.

Looking forward to lots of conversations with irritating lag.
